Milani Pretty Natural Color Statement Lipstick is just one of several new permanent shades in the Color Statement Lipstick Collection. I’m such a suck for shades like Pretty Natural as it is one of those pretty MLBB (my lips but better) pinks that I adore.
Pretty Natural def is up there with great my lip but better shades but it is a bit drying…!
Milani Pretty Natural Color Statement Lipstick is a pretty medium pink with hints of rose. This is a cream formula with a satin finish and a strong watermelon scent and flavor that I enjoy but can prove a little too much for sensitive users. The shade has a soft satin finish with excellent color coverage on a single application. It wears for four hours but does have a drier feel so you might be comfortable through the entire wear so a little clear gloss on top helps this along.
I find the Color Statement Lipstick Collection can be inconsistent formula wise. Some are outstandingly creamy and apply like butter where as shades like Pretty Natural are drier and have a bit of tugging involved during application. This color is gorgeous but the formula itself leaves a little bit to be desired. In order to work with it I found applying clear gloss on top gives it a smoother appearance and a more weightless, comfortable wear as alone it does feel a bit dry and looks a bit uneven and patchy on my lips. Worn with or without gloss I had no issues with it migrating or feathering.
If you’re looking for a pretty MLBB pink I think you’ll love Pretty Natural but you will have to contend with a few application and wear issues.
This shade will launch in February at CVS.
